PCH Parking Study
Project Overview
The City, in collaboration with the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) and Caltrans, is conducting a parking study to examine current road and shoulder conditions, create a parking inventory, analyze parking related collisions, assess safety, and develop recommendations to improve parking on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) in Malibu.

In June 2015, the City Council approved the PCH Safety Study Final Report (Safety Study). The report indicated that many collisions along PCH were related to parking and parking maneuvers. To build upon the Safety Study, the City launched the PCH Parking Study at the end of 2015. Stantec Engineering, the firm that completed the Safety Study, was selected to conduct the Parking Study.

The consultant team has conducted field inspections, performed aerial mapping, reviewed existing parking regulations, drafted an existing conditions inventory, analyzed collision reports, identified collision patterns, and researched parking policy and regulations.
